Traditional cabinetry celebrated in Z8 Butterfly collection

Reece has collaborated with Australian design brand, Zuster, who have expanded their furniture design empire into the bathroom with bespoke furniture collection Z8 Butterfly.

Devoted to beauty and personal style, Z8 Butterfly is named for its signature “butterfly” handle, a custom joinery detail that has been handed down over three generations of Zuster craftspeople. This homage to traditional cabinetry forms a beautiful counterpoint to Zuster’s very contemporary vision for the bathroom.

This comes to life through the addition of cleverly integrated luxuries such as a dresser bench for sitting, a dedicated shaving cabinet and a tall boy which incorporates a laundry basket. A set of secret drawers for make-up and accessories are cleverly concealed within the Z8 Butterfly’s adjoining tall boy and slide open with a single touch. A unique and innovative feature is the Z8 Butterfly’s mirrors which, like a pair of wings, open and turn to give a full, round-vision view of your hair and make-up.

“In designing ISSY by Zuster we really thought about that feeling of hotel luxury and the idea that your home bathroom is your sanctuary,” said Sibbel.“There is also the important element of convenience – the comfort of sitting and the ease of being able to open a drawer for your make-up, hairdryer and laundry,” she said. “The Z8 Butterfly genuinely solves a frustration we’ve had in the bathroom, and speaks to that ‘wow’ factor that women really love.”

ISSY by Zuster is designed and made in Melbourne and is available exclusively from Reece.
